Children often feel that if they give wrong answers that they are failures. Therefore they become complacent and reluctant to try and answer.
As an educator my aim has always been to make children confident enough to make errors and for them to realise that this is how we learn.
I am an experienced Foundation Phase Educator and am passionate about teaching children to become confident learners through play.
I encourage critical thinking and self-expression and in so doing develop emotional intelligence.
